Welcome to this informational website designed to provide you with an in-depth look at the world of "chemical systems capable of storing and supplying electrical energy" - batteries; specifically, battery technology, charging and energy use. Primarily, this site content focuses on "wet cell" electric vehicle applications, but much of the information applies to batteries in general and will be helpful to anyone.
This site contains two technical volumes for your reference and information:
